Nearly twenty years after the events of "The Girl of Your Dreams", in the 1950s, Macarena Granada, who has become a Hollywood star, returns to Spain to film a blockbuster about Queen Isabella I of Castile.
"A Matador's Mistress" is a tragically eloquent dance of the cold brutality of uncommitted love and the high stakes of the Bullfight. Immerse yourself in the culture of Spain surrounding the age old traditions of the Matador. While the bullfight is controversial by today's standards, the ancient art-form is depicted with unflinching realism. The story is of man against beast, the bullfighter's zen, if you will; his nightly dance with death. A world-class lover enters his world; their code is their truth. Life being lived, edgy, relentlessly flirting with disaster, untamed, beautiful.Written by

The young challenger matador's hat is missing as the camera moves from long shot to the close-up. He was in mid swing of his cape with nowhere he could have placed the cap, no one near enough to hand it to, and it is not on the ground. See more »
I guess I'm just a sucker for a sappy romance, period piece combination. The whole movie is beautiful to look at even if you have to rewind a few times to understand what is being said because they are in Spain speaking English. I do not understand why this movie received such little publicity. I had never heard of it before I saw it in the Redbox, and I'm glad I rented it. I'm not trying to spoil the movie for you, but be warned the life of a Matadors mistress is a stressful one. ha The whole movie centers around the romance between the Matador and his mistress. She is his mistress, but not because he is married to another woman. You will understand once you watch the movie. Anyway to sum up, if you hate somewhat historical, sappy romances don't watch this one.
